"Wilmington, Del., March 25. The
Bayards and the Saulsburys have represented Del
aware so long in the National Congress that many
persons think there are no other families of
any account in the State; but this is very far from
the truth, forthercarcnotonlymanyable, but some
very brilliant men here, and it would not do to
collect too much intellect upon so small an area,
for there would be danger of it tipping up, and
somebody might get hurt, and that might please
Colonel Bob Ingcrsoll; for if there is anything he
holds in detestation it is this same little State. He
could not be induced to look with favor upon
anything pertaining to it not even a basketful of
her most lucious peaches. Senator Bayard is very
popular in this his native place, and although
many are politically opposed to him, socially they
are his warm friends. About eight or ten miles
south of this city is the old home of one of Del
awares most brilliant statesmen,
THE LATE JOUN M. CLAYTON.
The mansion is very large, and is built of brick.
It is surrounded with extensive grounds filled with
handsome shrubbery, peach, plum, pear, and apple
trees. There is a fine barn, with every convenience
for storing grain and the care of stock. Before he
built this house, Mr. Clayton occupied an old
fashioned mansion upon the adjoining farm,
which he afterward sold; it was during tho excite
ment of the Mexican war, and the euphonious
names of the Mexican battlo-ficlds were pleasant
to his ear, so he named the old place "Buena
Vista," and when he built the new house he called
it "Palo Alto," by which namo it Is still known.
Mr. Claytan left no children, and the homestead
became the property of his nephew, who survived
him but a few years. It is now the home
of his grand-niece, who is a very pretty and a very
charming young lady. Mr. Clayton belonged to
the old lyhig party, and was a capital stump
speaker. During the Taylor campaign he was an
nounced to speak at a mass-meeting held at the
Brandy wine Springs. As no building large enough
could be obtained, it was decided to hold the
meeting in a ravine, the speaker standing in the
valley and his audience ranged in seats upon the
hill-sides. People flocked from all parts of the
surrounding country to hear him, some on horse
back, some in wagons, on foot, on mule-back, nnd
even ox-carts were pressed into the service. His
speech abounded with wit and anecdote, which
kept his hearers in
KOAR3 OF LAUGHTER ;
and when he told the story of the " Yorkshlreman
and the shilling" in his inimitable way it brought
down the house, or, rather, the hills. The old
Swedes' Church, in this city, Is an object of great
Interest. It was built by the Swedish settlers of the
State in 1C9S, Is very quaint in appearance, and in
the grave-yard attached are burled tho ancestors
of many of the oldest families here. On Chris
tiana Creek, and within the present limits of the
city, there is a small rocky promontory,
upon which the first Swedish colony
in America landed (April, 163S),and around which
was planted the first permanent European settle
ment in the valley of the Delaware. Wilmington
is a manufacturing city, and the place where iron
ship building was first carrfed on in this country,
and is still a leading scat of that industry. A walk
around the ship-yards is both instructive and en
tertaining. There arc also carriage factories, mo
rocco factories, foundries, and extensive works for
the manufacture of cars.
TWO OR THREE MILES NORTH OF THE CITY
there nre extensive powder works. The country
in the vicinity Is very beautiful, with pretty little
streams, shady drives, and grassy slopes; but 'tis
dangerous ground. There is no knowing at what
moment an explosion may occur, and what tho
result may be. There aro quite a number of hand
some residences near the works belonging to the
different members of the well-known family,
orginally from France, and who established the
manufacture of powder in Delaware. The sensa
tion is uot a pleasant one to be in one of these
houses, and while iudulging in the luxury of
an afternoon nap, to be suddenly awakened by a
clap of thunder, as it were, and in a moment have
the house rock from cellar to garret and every
window in it shattered ; or some bright, pleasant
morning, when seated upon the piazza enjoying
an interesting book, to be startled by something,
you hardly know what, and, looking up, perceive
heads, arms, and limbs flying up in tho air like
feathers. 'With the venerable Mrs. Partington,
some of the residents would much prefer being
upon "visa-versa." Notwithstanding the danger,
it is said men can always be obtained to. work in
the mills. One reason of this is the
HIGH WAGES PAID,
and another there is some provision made for the
widows and orphans in case of accident. There
was an explosion Monday morning, but they aro
not so frequent in these mills as they were a few
years since. Every precaution is taken to guard
against them, and the buildings arc very slightly
built. When one does occur very often the roof
only is lifted, leaving the walls intact; but at tho
some time'I for one would rather not run any risks
in that line. Although Wilmington is a large and
thorough business city, yet the primitive style of
market is still in vogue. The country wagons,
some of them very old and forlorn, too, uro backed
up close to the sidewalk, on the sunny side in
winter and the shady side in summer. The horses
are removed, and the vender stands near the back
ot the wagon with his wares for sale.
THE SCENE EAltLY IN THE MORNING
is a novel one, and one not soon forgotten. The
chatter of the buxom market women, whose only
opportunity for gossip is upon market day ; the
eager crowd of purchasers with basket In hand
old men, young men, housekeeper?, pretty girls;
the jostling, the crowding, tho display of fruits and
vegetables, rolls of golden butter, and baskets full
offroheggs, are a curious sight; and, strange to
say, all this, until within a very few years past,
was upon Market street, the principal
business street of the city. At pres
ent the market wagons aro confined
to an unimportant stieet. There are a number of
Quakers, or Friends, here, and the sweet "thee"
and "thou" is almost as common as "you" and
"your." Some of the most substantial farmers in
New Castle County belong to this sect, and their
houses and farms are perfect patterns of neatness
nnd thrift. 5ruch interest Is felt here in the new
railroad to be built this spring, and it is expected
to have part of it completed by June.
Kuorhliic I)omii n Defective.
Detective Yoss yesterday arrested a
colored thief named Holmes, charged with steal
ins a watch, and was calmly proceeding toward
headquarters with his prisoner when the alley
leading to the Herdic car-stables was reached.
Here nolmes caught the detective napping nnd
dealt him a terrific blow on the burr of the ear,
knocking him completely out of time. A few
stridessumced to give Vos as-ailaut a lead which
he was unable to overcome, and, much to his cha
grin, he saw his prisoner disappear in the dis
tance. The. affair happened about two o'clock,
and at a spot on the Avenue usually crowded
-with pedestrians. At the time of the knock1-.
down, however, no one was near, accord
ing to Mr. Voss, Who stated that the blow " up
set his recollection." Holmes is said to live on
the Island with his sister, and if he is captured
again the detectives promise to make it warm for
him. A crazy man, whom Detective McDevItt
took into custody, tried to make a sand-bag of the
detective's person. In fact, a detective's lot is not
much happier than a policeman's.
One of the social events of this season
in East Washington was the entertainment given
by Eureka Council, So. 8, Sons of Jonadab, on last
Thursday evening, when the hospitality of the
council was enjoyed by some two hundred guests.
Altera s-hort literary programme, which included
an original reading by Mr.Seth L. Clark, and a
finely rendered recitation by J. r. McCormick, of
Jersey City, the guests were placed in charge of
floor manager LewisThompson.and several happy
hours.were passed under his care. After dancing,
aline collation, prepared by the ladies, was par
taken of, and in the small hours of Friday morn
ing friends reluctantly separated. Among the
guests were S. P. Halvor Nelson, G. C. John Berry
and Mrs. Berry, P. G. C. William II. Walker, Mrs.,
and Miss Walker, G.S.C. P. Stetson, J. W. Weed,
W.C., Pioneer Council; nenry Brewer, Invincible

CouncU desire to thnnk Mr. T. F. McCauley, who
added much to the success of the entertainment.
Tlic O-Street JlnrJicl Question.
The Commissioners j-estcrday trans
mitted a reply to the memorial of the stall-holders
of the O-street market, denying their requests for
permission to have a market on the Seventh street
side of the square and to occupy their present
stalls until September next. The Commissioners
state first that the action of Congress indicates that
it is not desirable to have the school and market
in close proximity to each other; and, second, that
as k is intended to commence the erection of the
school building as soon after the 1st of July as pos
sible, the second request could not be granted.

park. The meeting was called to order by Mr. W.
Scott Smith, the president of the association, who
proceeded to state what had been done since tho
last meeting to promote the interests of the park
and the large number of residents living therein.
The first business 'before the association
was tho election of officers for the ensuing
year. On motion of General W. W. Birncy, Mr.
W. Scott Smith was unanimously re-elected presi
dent of the association, Colonel O. II. Irish was
nominated and elected vice-president; James H.
McGill, secretary; J.J.Albright, treasurer, and E.
B. Ba'rnum the additional member of the execu
tive committee. The president said he had re
cently had an interview with the District Commis
sioners, and that the lighting of two additional
gas lamps in the park had been ordered. He had
also seen the Major and Superintendent of Police
about giving the park better police protection, and
had received assurances that the matter should
receive prompt attention, and an officer detailed
specially for night duty in tho park.
General Birncy submitted a motion, which was
adopted, that a vote of thanks be extended to the
president of tho association for his active efforts
during the past year in behalf of the park.
The question of opening up a new street on the
east side of the Park, running from Boundary
street through to the Soldiers Home, then came
up, and gavo rise to considerable discussion, all
concurring in the opinion that such a street was
needed. A resolution was then offered and adopted
that the members of the association will co-operate
heartily With the"District Commissioners In se
curing the opening of such a street and road, and
instructing the executive committee to take steps
to make effective such co-operation. Attention
was directed to the fact that all the houses and a
large amount of property in the Park were greatly
exposed and jeopardized in case of a fire by the
action of the water department in shutting off the
pressure of water between the hours of midnight
and five' o'clock a. m., and thus practically pre
senting the flow of water in the park. Tho execu
tive committee were directed to look into the mat
ter and endeavor to have it remedied ns soon as
possible. The need of a fire-engine in the northern
section of the city was regarded as very pressing.
Afler discussing various other matters and direct
ing that rules be prepared for the government
and guidance of the special day-policemen, the

to state that a friend of mine visited Ford's Opera
nouse with his Wife on Wednesday evening, taking
balcony seals. Each noticed the entire lack of

lack of air, became more and more oppressive, and
after sturdy imt unsuccessful attempts on the part

A RAILROAD'S RESPONSIBILITY.
The Baltimore and Potomac Company
Wla One Salt Another One on Trial.
The case of Valentine Eoth against the
Baltimore and Potomac Railroad Company,
wherein Roth sued the railroad company for the
value of the services of his daughter, a little girl
eight years old, who was struck by a passing train
and killed, was concluded yesterday by the court
directing the jury to bring in a verdict for the
defendant. At the conclusion of the xlaintifl"s
evidence a motion was made for this purpose,
which the court granted. The ground t:f the de
cision was that the father of this little child had
been in the habit of sending hec across Virginia
avenue, on which three railroad tracks ran, to
carry milk about the neighborhood, and that on
this day she had gone over, probably, for the pur
pose of visiting an aunt who lived on the opposite
side of the street. The limited" express came in
from New York, and the child, when first seen,
was standing in the ditch at the side of the road,
between Third und Four-aud-a-half streets, aud
when the train came by the engine passed her,
but one of the cars struck her oa the head and
killed her. No one on the engine or train saw her.
The child was deaf and dumb, and the court held
that it was gross carelessness on tho part of the
parents to permit her to go across thisstreet in that
way, and that, being in the habit of sending her
across the railroad track for the purpose of deliver
ing milk, Ac, it would be presumed that she had
gone over this dangerous place by their consent.
The verdict was, therefore, rendered in behalf of
the railroad company. Mr. Birncy appeared for
the plaintiff, aud Enoch Totten, esq., for the rail
The Baltimore'and Potomac Railroad Company
at present is absorbing the entire attention of the
Circuit Court. Yesterday, after finishing with the
case of Valentine Roth against that corporation,
the suit brought by Dennis Pumphrey against the
road came on for hearing. This U an action filed
by Messrs. R. T. Merrick and William F. Mattingly
in behalf of the plnintiff for20,000 damages. In
April, 187S, Edison Pumphrey, a lad about ten
years of age, son of the complainant, was
run over by a train at Virginia avenue nnd Four-
and-a-half street, and his left leg was cut off.
below the knee. The father entered, a suit for
damages to the amount above stated. The. little
fellow was in court yesterday, moving nbout on his
crutches. The company pleads that there was
neither carelessness nor negligence on Its part.
AYhen the court adjourned yesterday Colonel
Enoch Totten, counsel for the company, was put
ting in the evidence for his side. The case will be
finished next Monday, to which time the jury was
THE BIG PRINTING OFFICE.
Beginning; Work: on the Extension A
Wholesale Furlough In Proapcct.
Ground was broken on Wednesday last
for the new addition to the Government Printing
Office. Congress appropriated StO.OOu for this work,
upon the plans submitted to the committees by
Architect Clark, at the request of Mr. Defrees. An
adjoining lot of ground was purchased upon which
to build n new stable, the old one to be torn down,
occupying as it did space upon which the addition
is to be built. This addition is to be four stories
high with a basement, and will be 94 by 60 feet.
The basement will bo used to store fuel ; the first
story asa yaultforthestereotypeplales; thesccond
story will be the specification room; the third
an addition to the bindery, and the fourth
an extension of the folding-room. Tho additional
structure will be built of brick, and be a3 nearly
fire-proof as the nature of its materials w ill allow.
The plan of the addition is in outward appearance
precisely the same as the main building. Archi
tect of the Capitol Clark is superintending the
construction, most of which will be done by day's
work under the supervision of assistant superin
tendents. It is expected to have the whole job
completed by the 1st of October. The failure of
Congress to appropriate for tho Govern
ment Printing Office according to Mr. Defrees'
estimates leaves such a want of funds, it is stated,
that it will be absolutely necessary to furlough
hundreds of employees between this and the 1st
of July. The number of these will probably reach
eight hundred. The furloughiug will be gradual,
and, although great suffering must eu;ue, it will
be done in such manner as to cause the minimum
of annoyance. There will be probably three hun
dred in the folding-room, most of them women,
who will thus be temporarily deprived of work
through the falso "economy" principles of the
majority in the last Congress.
